Long weekends: What a treat!

It's Friday. For some of us, it's pay day. And, best of all,  a 3-day weekend awaits us. Triple jackpot!

I posted earlier this week about how great it would be if employees had the option to work four-day weeks, thereby giving them three days off in which to rest, have fun, handle errands, etc.

Since this choice is available to hardly anyone, all we can do is look forward to the next holiday that falls on a Friday or Monday. For those in the U.S., that would be Memorial Day, which is celebrated this year on Monday, May 25.

While some people like using three-day weekends to go on vacation, I like staying close to home and hitting up the movies and restaurants, as well as squeezing in a concert or ballgame if we're able to book the tickets on time.

Normally, I do nothing on Sundays but stay home relax, watch TV, and catch up on bills. When I know I'll have Monday off, however, Sunday becomes a "Saturday, continued" and Monday, the day before we have to return to work, acts as a Sunday.

No matter what you're doing this Memorial Day weekend, whether it's barbecuing, sunbathing, or simply staying in, I wish you and your family a great long weekend. Happy travels, and be safe out there!

What are you planning to do this weekend?
